Bollywood actor Salman Khan was recently stopped at the Mumbai's International airport before he was to travel to Russia for his next film, 'Tiger 3', alongside Katrina Kaif.

The actor was photographed at the Mumbai airport with the crew and actors.  According to social media footage, Salman avoided the mob. He made his way to the airport gate when a CISF officer stationed at the door stopped him for the mandatory security checkup. Salman was told to reveal his face and clear security check before he could be allowed into the airport.
